BMC Switzerland is releasing another exclusive impec bicycle, drawing inspiration from the successful impec Lamborghini Edition -- the Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec. A combination of high-end Italian components and a Swiss-made impec frame, the Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec features the same precision, detail, and style used in the Lamborghini Aventador.
This exclusive impec builds upon the similarities between race cars and race bikes -- shapes and colors, cutting-edge technology and high-performance handling characteristics. Other similarities include complete integration of engineering, research, and design. On the other hand, Lamborghini and BMC are known for breakthroughs in their fields even while skirting trends and conventions.
Both companies are also known for transforming novel concepts into functional designs as well as for always trying to think outside the box for solutions. Both companies have made carbon composite manufacturing as the core of their projects and their successes.
Lamborghini produces carbon bodywork at plant located next headquarters in Sant'Agata, Bologna, Italy, while BMC operates a fully automatized production site in Grenchen, Switzerland.
With these similarities, it leaves no doubt why these two companies have reached a deal to build the 50th Anniversary Lamborghini Edition impec. Blending Italian flair and tradition with modern technology, the impec features an exclusive set of made-in-Italy components equipping the frame.
The frame, painted to emphasize the precise carbon assembly, connects the complete work to Lamborghini's Aventador dream car. A number of details have been slotted in from the Aventador, like the leather used by Lamborghini for their seats.
The leather can be found on the impec's cockpit for bar tape and saddle. Only 50 examples of the Lamborghini 50th Anniversary Edition impec can be ordered by interested buyers around the world at a retail price of EUR25,000 exclusively through either the international BMC or Lamborghini dealer network. The impec will be produced on a made-to-order basis.
Lamborghini has long been known to have a design that displayed how beautiful having aggressive power is while at the same time showing just how elegant its dynamics are. This is why even with just one look, there is no doubt that the Aventador is indeed a member of Lamborghini’s range of excellent cars. It has the quality the brand is known for and comes with a highly unique design language.
Indeed, the proportions are strong and have the precise surfaces and exact lines. Each of the details reveal its tight sturdiness. That the proportions are indeed striking is due to the overall length of 188.19 inches (4.78 meters) combined with the total width, with the exterior mirrors, at 88.98 inches (2.26 meters). Highlighting the notable proportions is the low height which measures 44.72 inches (1.136 meters).
Design-wise, Centro Stile Lamborghini’s designers made sure to a design language so that the Aventador would have that all-important edge against its rivals. If one were to describe the Aventador, it would be that it is an innovative piece of art. Proof of this is the dynamic sculpture which begins from the front section which clearly has been sharply refined going to the very low roofline and all the way to that unique diffuser in the rear.
While each line on the design also has a function, all of the shapes were included in order to address the need for speed. Even with all of these, the overall appearance of the Aventador is nothing short of breathtaking and stunning.
Given that the Aventador is a Lamborghini model, there is no arguing that the two doors open upward. Now made of carbon-fiber monocoque, this method of opening the door was first applied on the now iconic Countach. After that, the brand decided to use it as well for many of the V12 models like the Murciélago and the Diablo. Specifically for the Aventador, its appearance brings to mind Murciélago, which is in fact its predecessor model.
It has air intakes that are electronically operated and will only open based on the outside temperature as well as if any need cooling air is needed. As such, it maximizes the vehicle’s aerodynamic efficiency. For customers who want to show off what makes a Lamborghini truly magnificent, the brand is offering the option to have the engine bonnet be transparent. With this, the 12-cylinder engine is displayed for the world to see.
